BGCBigs Youth Newsletter | June2023

BGCBigs wants to keep you informed on all things in the community and in youth employment.
An upcoming opportunity for a mentoring session with Coke Canada Bottling is happening next week.

This is an incredible opportunity to share a conversation, ask questions and seek advice from Coke Canada professionals, practice professional communication skills, increase awareness and access to job opportunities, as well as build confidence for future success.

Each youth in attendance will also be entered into a draw for a chance to win a Coke Canada prize pack! Also, our agency BGCBigs will enter all youth who participate in a draw for a gift card of your choice! Once you register, please let us know.
